Today, APA Compass features two silenced stories:
Professor Linda Tamura, author of "Nisei Soldiers Break Their Silence: Coming Home to Hood River". She explains the national notoriety which Hood River, Oregon, received after WWII, and how and why she broke the code of silence surrounding the situation.
Film maker Vidyut Latay's documentary, "Beyond Silence" chronicles the lives of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community in Mumbai India. The film has won the Award of Merit for Short Documentary - Best Shorts Competition in LA Jolla, CA.
APA Compass promotes social justice, features APA arts and culture, and challenges how APAs are represented in the media. Our archives are at apaCompass.wordpress.com. If you have a story idea or would like to contribute, leave us a message on our Facebook page, APA Compass Radio.
